Informações sobre o curso

Precision medicine has the potential to change fundamentally how health care is practiced, but requires a health care workforce that understands the complexities of this field. One important component of Precision Medicine is the use of an individual’s genomic information to offer targeted treatment, tailored to the individual. Our course aims to provide participants with some baseline knowledge of genomics, an overview of the clinical applications of genomic medicine, the skills to evaluate the clinical validity and utility of new tests, and an appreciation of the associated ethical and social issues inherent in this field. The course is geared toward practicing health care providers, although it should be accessible to anyone with a background in the biological sciences and a basic understanding of genetics. It is designed to be succinct and clinically-focused, offering both conceptual and practical information about real-world applications of genomics. Two lessons offer a basic primer on molecular genomics relevant to the individual patient as well as to patient populations. The remaining five lessons focus on five applications of genomics and present the material as case studies, highlighting the strengths, limitations, and issues that arise in the use of each test....

I'm a nutritionist, not a traditional doctor, and I loved this course. I feel very much more brought-up-to-speed about current techniques and technologies and really enjoyed the instructors.

Being myself working for 2 years as a genetic data analyst, I still found this course interesting and learnt new things. Thanks to Coursera and Professors as well as University of Cali, SF.

Pretty good course. Not for beginners. Meant for doctors. Probably needs an update in 2019. Some of the material is dated.

The course, Genomic and Precision Medicine is an exceptional resource for clinicians at various levels. This entire course is divided amongst 7 informative weeks of succinct and updated lectures with current technologies, and explanations of both pro's and con's for each sub-topic. Course Professors, Dr. Jeanette McCarthy and Chief, Dr. Robert L. Nussbaum provide superior presentations that meet and at times, surpass University level instruction and orientation to the new depth of Genomic medicine.

Although I am continuing to become familiar with her new publication, "Precision Medicine" a guide to genomics in clinical practice, I have already begun using and sharing this plethora of information within my daily medical practice and amongst other Physician providers. I look forward to migrating my additional interests in the areas of personalised medicine courses offered directly through "Precision Medicine Advisors" and the derivative Course topic of Bioinformatics... Much thanks and cheers, wonderful educational and practical clinical materials to enrich most medical practices!
